IssueAIX - Syslogd flag -n should not be used  (AIX event source not discovered)
Majority of AIX messages are undefined
CauseWhen syslogd started with -n flag, it will suppress string "Message forwarded from <hostname>" added to the beginning of the syslog message that is forwarded to remote host. See http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/pseries/v5r3/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.aix.doc/doc/base/aixinformation.htm (search syslogd)
Envision expects to receive this string as part of message header, most of messages will be unknown due to missing this string.
ResolutionWhen start syslogd daemon on AIX, don't use -n flag.
